Selma Police Department Purchases PatrolEyes Police Body Cameras
Selma, AL - The Selma Police Department has recently purchased 55 PatrolEyes HD body cameras.
Selma Police Chief, William T. Riley III believes that every law enforcement agency in the country should have some sort of recording device. "Everything goes back to making sure the police are doing what they're supposed to be doing and show what exactly the public is doing,” Riley said.
One of Riley’s officers was recently not indicted for a 2013 shooting, thanks to body camera footage showing the suspect charging at the officer wielding a hatchet. In the footage, the officer can be clearly heard telling the suspect to drop his weapon several times as he charges the officer. The officer was cleared following a State Bureau of Investigation, District Attorney investigation and a grand jury decision for the fatal shooting of the armed suspect.
The Selma Police Chief said to WSFA 12 News that deadly force is always a last resort, but it is an officer's duty to protect and serve, both the public and police.
"Because right then and there its going to be only the officer and that individual and we need to know and I say we, the public for our public trust, need to know what really happened,” Riley said
